In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
The first part of a excellent documentary last night on BBC2 The Harold Shipman Files...A very British crime.

I guess we will never know how many of his patients he euthanised.He was only caught out by a hamfisted attempt at altering a patients Will for his advantage.

Yes, I watched part 1 too. Of all the serial murderers in history, this really is the most puzzling. I mean, what on earth was his motive? Ok, there was the one case of will fiddling, but that was very much the exception. What was floating his boat? We'll never know.

The feeling of being able to play God ?
Think it was on the news at the time rather than in any documentary that a woman from Hyde was interviewed and said something along the lines of "We've not got over Brady and Hindley and now this..."

Morning Jinxy. I think Dirty Harry Callaghan can assist here:

HC: He's gonna' kill again.

District Attorney Rothko*: How do you know ?

HC: 'Cause he likes it

* Yes I know his hair was too long to be a proper DA

Yes, but why did he like it? It's usually for sexual or monetary reasons. Can't see that either of those were in play.

For any insomniacs.
The first Presidential debate is on Sky News & BBC News Channels at 1.30am tomorrow(30th)

Yep, I'd have to be fairly sleep deprived to stay up to see that one. Mind you, the prospect of seeing Sleepy torn a new one does have some appeal. Rumour is however he's looking to do a last minute cancellation with some kind of CV excuse.
